Georgia

Age: 1 year
Gender: female
Breed: Large Mix Breed/Unknown
Does well with: Dogs, Cats, & children
Special Needs: N/A
Adoption Fee: $100 + tax

 

 

Georgia has had a rough start to life! She spent most of her young life outdoors and it took her awhile to trust being an inside, family dog. She’s still fairly timid but learning to trust. After she meets and trusts other dogs, she will play for hours! She’s doing well with potty and kennel training. She doesn’t love to sit still for pictures but other than that, she’s a great girl! She still has some anxiety but is ready for her forever family!

Ranger

Age: 1 1/2 years
Gender: male
Breed: corgi mix
Does well with: children, CATS & dogs
Special Needs: N/A
Adoption Fee: $100 + tax

 

 

This pointy-eared fellow is Ranger. He’s about 45 lbs now and plays well with his foster brothers and sisters. He has some resource guarding issues that are being worked on with his foster. He was surrendered after nipping at someone’s foot while they were messing with him as he chewed a bone. He didn’t even break skin but scared them and they wanted him gone after. He knows a lot of basic commands, is doing well on potty training, and is kennel trained. He is very protective over his food, treats, and toys which is also being worked on. He is neutered and up to date on shots.

Ruby

Age: 8 Years
Gender: Female
Breed: Miniature Dachshund
Does well with: Dogs & children 8+
Special Needs: Bad allergies/special food + vitamins
Adoption Fee: $50+ tax

 

 

Meet Ruby. She is an 8-year old miniature dachshund. She was an owner surrender due to no fault of her own. She does well with other dogs of all sizes. She does well with children, but we will only allow her to go to a home with children 8 years and older. She is only about 7 lbs and a senior dog and could easily get hurt in a home with smaller kids. She takes evening primrose oil in the mornings and wild salmon oil in the evenings. She is on a special diet due to her extreme allergies. She has to be on Venture Squid & Chickpea dog food specifically which is $70 for a 25 lb bag. Something to keep in mind before applying. We will have a full allergy list for you. She can be on Benadryl and has a topical spray if she gets itchy (she’s even allergic to grass!) but even with all these allergies, she’s a very happy dog. She is potty and kennel trained. She easily takes her pills and doesn’t mind getting her nails clipped. She loves to play and chew on toys (and also blankets so make sure they are her own). She barks when someone is at the door but she’s a relatively quiet dog otherwise. She’s a huge snuggler and would love nothing more than to live out her days snuggled on the couch watching Netflix with you. She is getting spayed and up to date on shots on May 23rd and then will be available for adoption.

Founded in June  of 2017, the purpose of Tails of the Midwest Rescue is to take in unwanted, abandoned, abused, or stray pets and attempt to find suitable forever-homes for them. This will prevent possible neglect and/or euthanasia. This rescue is created and run by local volunteers in the Bismarck-Mandan community. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and fully foster-based.

Marissa Rath

Hello! My name is Marissa Rath. I’m a single-parent raising a 4-year old son and two dogs. Kopa is a four year old Chiweenie. I took him and his sister in after finding out the abuse they had suffered and that they were going to be put-down. I ended up finding a home for the female but Kopa grew very attached to my son and vice-versa so he was here to stay. Amelia is a two year old Golden Retriever/Bulldog mix that looks nothing like either breed. I had fostered her and her ten puppies for another rescue and once all the puppies found forever homes, I kept her. I’ve been part of the rescue community for about four years and enjoy every second of it. I work full-time for an insurance company as a claims benefit specialist and part-time cutting hair. I’ve been a licensed cosmetologist for nine years. In my spare time, I love to cook and have been a vegetarian for thirteen years. I live for my daily coffee and you can find me most happy with my nose buried in a book. I am a certified holistic health coach and a wellness advocate for doTERRA Essential Oils. I am also certified in holistic tarot and crystal healing.

Melissa Carson

Hello! I am Melissa Carson. I’m married with a 4-year old son and two dogs. Goose is a Golden Retriever and Rooster is an English Mastiff. I work full-time at an engineering firm and in my spare time I spend time with my family and dogs, playing volleyball, and shooting. My family loves to camp in the summer and we have a large backyard to spend time in with friends. I started fostering for another rescue a few years ago and got to see a senior dog find his forever family. After that, I was hooked on the feeling of pure joy of seeing the connection between dog and human come alive.

Tiffany Christensen

Hello! My name is Tiffany Christensen. I have been involved in animal rescue and dog training for over 15-years. After witnessing firsthand the hundreds of adoptable dogs being euthanized for behavioral problems that could be easily corrected, I began working with rescues to help rehabilitate and train their harder-to-adopt dogs to overcome their problems and become more likely to be adopted. I am an advocate for the No-Kill Initiative and firmly believe that all dogs deserve a chance at life. I moved to North Dakota in 2010 and fell in love with the area. In 2016, I opened Kanine Kingdom which offers doggy daycare, kennel-free boarding, and scientific based dog training to the Williston area. I currently live in Willison, ND with 9-dogs that I affectionately call my ‘kids’. Hunter is a 12-year old Labrador. Gunner is a 6-year old Mastiff/Lab mix. Rhaurie is a 6-year old Irish Wolfhound. Freddie is a 3-year old Irish Wolfhound/Lab mix. Cooper is a 12-year of Bichon. Lucy is a 3-year old Pomeranian/Dachshund mix. Ethel is an 8-year old Chihuahua. Ayana is a 6-year old Irish Wolfhound and Katie is a 1-year old Pitbull mix.

Cassandra Sattler

I have been an animal lover since I was a kid and brought home as many animals as my parents would let me (and some they wouldn’t let me.) In 2017 I bought a house and was able to start fostering. I’m also a student, a soldier and work as a home health aide but when people ask me for an introduction, the first thing I tell them is that I foster dogs! I have a nine year old black mutt named Alix who has shared all of life’s adventures with me since 2010 and a one year old black lab named Loki who I “foster failed” in Feb of 2019. I enjoy traveling, kayaking, camping, hiking, riding motorcycle and making things/art.
